No other artist has had as lasting an influence on German rock music as Inga Rumpf. Her smokey, bluesy voice, influenced by icons such as Mahalia Jackson and Nina Simone, fills fans all over the world with enthusiasm to this day. Her seemingly limitless stylistic range has rightfully earned Inga Rumpf a reputation as Germany s no. 1 rock vocalist.
1970s All Will Be Changed saw the newly formed band gear their music to established international sounds, but they immediately found their own style thanks to the ever-present drone of a Hammond organ and Rumpf s unique voice. They initially worked without a guitarist, allowing keyboardist Jean-Jacques Kravetz to rotate the powerful Leslie rotor. The national press initially eyed Frumpy with the typical scepticism of that time towards anybody who made rock music on German shores. Unimpressed by such ambiguities, Frumpy continued to work on their career and influenced countless other bands and vocalists over the years.
Their now legendary debut album is being released completely remastered in digipak format with exclusive liner notation and rare photos.
Greatest German rock band ever!

"Almost completely different from the other Frumpy albums (there is no lead guitar solos) this is still a wonderful example of German progressive rock of the early seventies. Forget the opening track 'life without pain' which is a gospel type thing and totally different from what follows, which is keyboard dominated with lots of long solos maybe a little similar to Atomic rooster, but what stands out is the stunning singing of Inga Rumf surely one of the best female vocalist ever! Whereas the latter albums were more rock orientated, this is much more involved with changing time signatures and tracks that flow into each other. In my opinion, Frumpy were the best band ever to come out of Germany (and yes i have heard Can and Amon Dull) because they avoided all the indulgencies that ruined the other bands. Supreme musicianship. Buy it!"

"Frumpy were unique among prog bands. They could tear the wallpaper with solos as good as any, but embraced blues where many other in the genre abandoned or mutated it.
This album starts with a gospel based number that could be from Exile On Main St. Then All Will Be Changed blasts into jammier terriorty. Much of this music is blues based, but Frumpy had a unique way of lending a classical elegance to their blues without a wiff of pretention. They were able to be sophistaced without losing the essence of the music.
Great album from a great band."
